Sharp corner tubes in stainless steel are supplying the most prestigious execution when having a polished surface. There are different types of polish levels, from dull polish over hair line finish to the absolute high-end mirror polish finish. In addition, among each finish one will find different executions, in example: a mirror polish can be of good quality with some blurriness, up to a perfect mirroring without any distortion. It is good practice to have the execution mutually confirmed, in order to avoid misunderstandings. A polished surface gives elegance and value to the overall look of a façade. The reflected light improves the luminosity inside the building and will perfectly match to possible stainless steel cladding of the building.
Stainless steel is a green and ecological material being made from 90 and more percent of recycled scrap material. Stainless steel is durable and corrosion resistant and can be recycled again at the end of its lifetime. The sample shows three surface sides with satin polished surface and one with mirror polished surface. During polishing process the corners get slightly rounded in order to avoid risk of injury of a too sharp edge. With different levels of complexity, almost all type of sharp edge laser welded shapes for façades can be polished.
